Update Regarding Holly Cove Apartments Homicide
CCSO Homicide Detectives continue their investigation today into the shooting death of 17-year-old Lavonn Presley. Presley, an emancipated juvenile, was the lone resident of 1745 Wells Road #824, an apartment at the Holly Cove Apartment complex in Orange Park. Originally from Jacksonville, the victim resided in Orange Park for just the past two months.
At 4pm yesterday witnesses heard gunfire and saw multiple male suspects (likely in their older teens and 20’s) flee the area of the victim’s apartment. Witnesses saw the suspects enter a sedan-style vehicle and leave the area. Detectives are still actively working to verify the exact make and model of the suspect vehicle and will release that description once it becomes finalized.
Anyone with information about this murder incident is encouraged to call the Clay County Sheriff’s Office to speak to Homicide Unit Detectives at 904-213-6620 or to call First Coast Crime Stoppers if interested in a cash reward.
